FOR THE YEAR
PUBLISHED BY THE UNIVERSITY
DAILY MESSENGER PRESS,
HIS publication represents in part the work that has been done
during the year in the Alumni Department of the Ohio Univer-
sity. It is only fair to my predecessor to say that there was a
good basis upon which to begin at the first of the year. Much
of the work has necessarily been in locating the alumni. This
has necessitated a vast amount of correspondence. As many as twenty-
five letters have been written to discover the whereabouts of one alumnus.
At this time there are less than twenty, whom the secretary really knows
nothing about. These names will be found in the "unverified" list. There
are also some names in this list which do not belong to this class. That is,
the secretary knows where they are, but they have failed to fill out and send
us the verification card that was sent to each alumnus. The reason for
placing these in this column is that in the "verified" list it was the wish
to have it absolutely correct. This would be impossible, except each alum-
nus verify the statement concerning himself.
The secretary solicits the help of any one who is able to give him
information concerning those yet " unverified." The addresses given for
those are the ones as they appear the last time on the University records.
We are desirous of keeping in touch with every graduate of old "O. U."
To this end, we hope that as a loyal alumnus of the University you will
notify the secretary of changes in address, name, or occupation. Statement
of any title or official distinction that you may receive, or the accomplish-
ment of some work, as the author of a book, contributor to magazines, etc.,
will aid us in making the proposed Alumni Catalogue complete and accurate.
As the work of the department becomes more organized, it is the inten-
tion to add various features to these alumni publications. The secretary
is collecting material connected with the history of the University. Any
one who possesses any information, in the way of reminiscences, old cata-
logues, newspaper clippings, etc., will confer a favor by sending them to
1 desire to express my thanks to the President and Faculty of Ohio
University for the help given in collecting the material for this publication,
as well as many others who have assisted in every way. I hope to make
these bulletins of increasing interest to the alumni, ex-students, and friends
of the Ohio University.

OUVER. PERRY SHIRAS. '53
PEAKING of his experiences in Ohio University, Mr. Shiras
"During the years I attended the Ohio University, the
number of students was not large, yet the number was sufficient to
give the stimulus needed to keep the students at their best and the
faculty was worthy of their places.
"The atmosphere of Athens was moral and healthful and I
have always looked back to the days spent at the University with
pleasure and I know I have profited from the training I received
20 ALUMNI NUMBER
"Judging from my own experience, I should say that, as a
pioneer institution, the Ohio University has exercised a most bene-
ficial influence on the students that have attended it and through
them has caused that influence to be felt for good in all the com-
munities wherein the after life of its students has been spent."
Fifty-six years have gone hj since Oliver Perry Shiras passed
out of the doors of the Ohio University and entered upon his most
successful career. It means a good deal to an institution to have
fostered in her halls a student of the calibre of Mr. Shiras, who, af-
ter the lapse of so many years, and now, in the evening of his da^'S,
can speak so eloquently of the college of his youth.
There were two of the Shiras boys but the elder left a year
before his graduation and so Yale has the honor of graduating an
associate justice of the United States Supreme Court, in whom the
pioneer college on the Hocking claims a share.
The subject of this sketch was bom in the city of Pittsburg,
October 22, 1833. Five years later his parents moved to a farm
in Beaver County, Pennsylvania, about twenty miles from Pitts-
burg, on the banks of the Ohio. At the beginning of the school
year in 1848 he came to Athens, entering the preparatory classes.
A year later he became a regular collegiate student and graduated
with his class in 1853.
In college he was strong in mathematics, a member of the
Philomathean Literary society and belonged to the Beta Theta Pi
Upon leaving the Ohio University, he went to Yale, entering
first, the department of Philosophy and Arts, where eighteen
months were spent, thence passing into the Law School, from which
he graduated in 1856 with the degree of L. L. B. The additional
degrees received by Mr. Shiras are, the A. M., from Ohio University
in 1856; L. L. D., from Yale in 1885 and L. L. D. from Ohio
After a trip through the Mississippi valley, looking for a loca-
tion, he decided to make Dubuque, la., his future home. Here, in
August, 1856, he was admitted to the bar, and shortly thereafter,
became the junior member of the firm of Mills and Shiras, one of
the strongest law firms in Dubuque, where there were several very
strong firms, exerting a potent influence in the formation and de-
velopment of the jurisprudence of that western state. This firm
continued until the retirement of ]Mr. Mills in 1861.
In August, 1862, Mr. Shiras volunteered in the military service
OHIO UNIVERSITY 21
and was First Lieutenant of the Twenty-seventh Iowa Vohinteer
Infantry. Before the regiment was ordered into active service, by
order of Major General Pope, then in command of the Department
to which Iowa belonged, Lieutenant Shiras was detailed for staff
duty and ordered to report to General Frank J. Herron, com-
mander of the Third Division of the Army of the Frontier, which
Avas being organized at Springfield, Mo., under command of Gen-
eral J. M. Schofield. He was assigned as aid-de-camp to General
Herron and Acting Judge Advocate.
The Army of the Frontier, up to June, 1863, saw active service
in Missouri, Arkansas and Indian Territory. At this time the force
of General Herron was transferred to the aid of Grant at Vicks-
bug, and there it supported the left wing of the army. After the
fall of Vicksburg, Lieutenant Shiras went with his chief up the
Yazoo river, to capture Yazoo City and destroy the Confederate
works at that place. His next duty was on the Mississippi river,
between Port Hudson and Baton Kouge, to afford protection to
the boats navigating the Mississippi. In 1864, General Herron was
sent to the Rio Grande river to aid in stopping the sending of
supplies to the Confederates from Mexico. Mr. Shiras now resigned
from the army and resumed the practice of his profession in Du-
buque. In 1867, the law firm of Shiras and Van Duzee was
formed. This firm did a large and successful business and later
was joined by David B. Henderson, whose subsequent career was
very eminent and successful. This firm continued until 1882, when
Mr. Shiras was appointed by President Arthur, United States
Judge for the Northern District of Iowa. The following Novem-
ber, Mr. Henderson was elected to Congress, a position which he
held for eighteen years, the last four of which he was Speaker
of the House.
The Eighth Judicial Circuit, of which Iowa is a part, is com-
posed of the states of Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Arkansas, Okla-
homa, including the Indian Territory, Kansas, Nebraska, North
and South Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado and New Mexico^an
empire in extent. This necessitated the holding of courts in widely
separated localities. Upon the creation of the Circuit Court of
Appeals, Judge Shiras was assigned at different times to sit as a
member of that Court, in the Eighth Circuit, and in all his term
of service in that Court aggregated five years. As Judge, he dis-
charged his duties with great ability and satisfaction. His career
has been one of marked distinction.
November 1, 1903, shortly after his service and age entitled
him to the honor and privilege of retiring, he returned to private
life. His term on the Federal bench was twnty-one years.
However, Judge Shiras continues to take an active interest in
life and public affairs. He was chairman of the Building and Ad-
ministration committee of the Free Public Library of Dubuque,
is a trustee of the Finley hospital and chairman of the Park com-
mittee of the city of Dubuque.
Judge Shiras is the author of "Equity Practice in the Courts
of the United States". He has been twice married. His first wife
was Elizabeth R. Mitchell, to whom he was united February 17,
1857. She died August 11, 1885. On December 11, 1888, he mar-
ried Hetty E. Spalding Cornwall.

T the recent Alumni dinner in Columbus, among the many
excellent addresses that were made, there was none that
was listened to with greater attention than that of Prof.
William Henry Young of the class of 1853. That he was the dean
of the occasion in point of age, was not the only factor that gave
him first place on the program. But his ripe scholarship, his re-
lation to the Ohio University for so many years as a member of
her faculty, his military career, his position as an eplucator and his
term of public life, all conspired to make him a central figure in a
group of intellectual men and women.
Mr. Young was born at the Kanawha Salines, Virginia, now
West Virginia, December 31, 1832. He prepared for college at
24 ALUMNI NUMBER
the old Ohio Conference High School, at Springfield, under Dr.
Solomon Howard, who subsequently became the President of Ohio
University. His first college work was done at the Ohio Wesleyan
University, at Delaware. He came to the Ohio University in the
spring of 1853 and graduated at the following commencement as
Bachelor of Arts. Three years later he was granted the Master's
degree. As a student, he excelled in both Greek and Philosophy,
and he took an active interest in the Athenian Literary society.
Before entering the University, Mr. Young had some experience
as a teacher, for he had been principal of a High School at Putnam,
O., in 1850-51.
Upon graduation, he again took up the work of pedagogue,
becoming principal of the academy at Worthington, O., in 1853.
The next year he was called to the Ohio University, where he re-
mained until the opening of the Civil War. The positions held at
the University were, Principal of the Preparatory Department,
1854-5; Professor of Mathematics, 1855-8; Professor of Ancient
His military career consisted in being Lieutenant-Colonel of
the Twenty-sixth Ohio Volunteer Infantry. The regiment served
successively in Generals Woods and Sherman's Divisions, Army of
the Cumberland. He served in the army from December, 1861,
until April, 1864. Then he came back to Ohio University and
taught Greek and Latin until 1869.
President Grant then appointed him American Consul at Carls-
ruhe, Germany, where he did distinguished service for his country
for seven years.
The years spent in the army resulted in a physical breakdown,
and the term in the consular service added a mental strain that pre-
vented his continuance in arduous labor. Yet for four years he
conducted a business enterprise in Columbus, O.
Since his retirement, he has traveled extensively and has de-
voted his leisure moments to scientific research. He has crossed
the Atlantic fourteen times.
Professor Young has had a varied experience along literary and
professional lines. He was licensed to preach in the Methodist
Episcopal church and in the years he was connected with the Uni-
versity, he frequently occupied the pulpit. Later, he was ordained
as minister. He often lectured before Teachers' Institutes, was
correspondent for mam^ papers and contributed much to the maga-
zines. For a time, he acted as associate editor of the Ohio Journal
of Education. He has always taken an active interest in the var-
ious phases of religious and church work. While at Athens, as a
member of the faculty, he was one of the county school examiners.
In politics, Mr. Young has been an independent thinker. He
wears no political collar, and is unalterably opposed to the "ma-
chine" and the "boss." He is a Mason and for three years was
Eminent Commander of the Knights-Templar at Athens. He also
holds a membership in the "Society for Psychical Research," Lon-
Prof. Young now lives a retired life in cozy apartments at
the "Normandie," Columbus, O., where, surrounded by his books,
and in company with his splendid German wife, he is passing the
evening of his life. He has been twice married. His present wife
was Miss Marie Wiedenhorn, a talented and educated lady of
Carlsruhe, Germany. The first Mrs. Young was a Miss Mattie J.
Morris, of Athens.

Prof. Corbin was born in Chillicothe, O., March 26, 1838. How
he spent his boyhood days and the preparation he made for college,
the writer does not know. But he came to Ohio University in 1850,
and three years later, he graduated, receiving the A. B. degree.
At a subsequent date, he received th Master's degree and, after
some years of experience, the title. Ph. D., was conferred upon him
by a Baptist institution in the South. During his college career,
he took an active part in the work of the Philomathean society,
and it was here that he laid the foundation of his success as a
OHIO lUNIVERSlTY 27
Upon leaving the University, he became a teacher in a school
m Louisville, Ky. When the war broke out, he went to Cincinnati,
where, with a company of young colored men, he edited and pub-
lished the Colored Citizen. After the war clouds blew away, he
went to the South, where a recently emancipated race needed lead-
ers. He at once took first rank among his people, as his career indi-
He became a resident of Arkansas in 1872. He was employed
as a reporter for the Arkansas Republican, and was, for a period,
chief clerk in the Little Rock post office. In the ensuing election,
after his arrival, he was elected state superintendent of public in-
struction. Favorable comment of his management of affairs is
made in the United States Bureau of Education, Reports for 1900.
When his term as state superintendent expired, he removed to
Missouri, where, for two years, he taught in the Lincoln Institute,
of Jefferson City. Returning to Arkansas, he assumed the presi-
dency of the Branch Normal college at Pine Bluff. When he took
charge of this institution, it existed only in name, but he made it
a very successful school. He is now, although seventy-six years of
age, the principal of the Merrill high school, in the same city and
has 450 pupils under his charge. As a mathematician, he frequently
contributes to the mathematical journals of the country. He is a
fluent reader of Greek, Latin, German, French, Spanish and He-
brew, and still continues his studies in these languages. He is a
member of the National Educational association, was president of
the State Colored Teachers' association, and has been, for twenty
years, a successful conductor of teachers' institutes.
His wife was Mary Jane Ward, of Cincinnati, whom he mar-
ried in 1863.
We close this sketch by quoting from "Men of Mark" :
"Professor Corbin is a man of solid acquirements and a hard
student — a man of fine personal qualities, an agreeable companion
and an eminent counselor. Such a store of knowledge, few men
acquire without more show. He is retired in his nature and very
modest. To his other accomplishments, he adds that of musician,
performing upon the piano, organ and flute."

F the many histories that have been published in Ohio, there
is one that has been quoted more than all the others com-
bined. It is Walker's. "History of Athens County."
There were several factors that have made this valuable county
history of interest to more people than those living in Athens
county. To begin with, it was a pioneer in local Ohio history. The
fact that Athens county has been so intimately connected with the
early state's history, gave additional reason for a splendid work.
But the best reason for its popularity is its authenticity, combined
with vivid description. It is a matter of no small pride to the Ohio
University that the author of this splendid book graduated from
her halls in 1853.
The Walker family is a pioneer one in southeastern Ohio. Dr.
Ezra Walker, the grandfather, came to xltheiis county in 1811 and
continued to live there for forty years. A son, Ezra, graduated at
I Ohio University in the class of 1829.
! . Charles Manning Walker was born in Athens on Christmas
day 1834. His early education was obtained from the public schools
which he attended until his entering the Ohio University. In col-
lege he was a Philomathean and a Beta Theta Pi.
Most of his life has been spent in literary pursuits. Even
while holding public positions, in the departments at Washington,
he devoted his spare time in his favorite study.
Among the official positions held by him, were Clerk of the
United States Treasury Department, 1861; Fifth Auditor of the
Treasury, 1862-69; Chief Clerk of Post Office Department, 1883-
85. For years he has been associate editor of the Indianapolis
Journal where he has taken first rank among the strong editorial
writers of the day.
Mr. Walker has Avritten quite a number of books among which
might be mentioned "History of Athens County," 1869 ; "First
Settlement of Ohio at Marietta"; "Life of Alvin P. Hovey"; "Life
of Oliver P. Morton."
Mrs. Walker was Miss Claire Albrecht, a lady of Washington,
DWARD WILLIAM MULLIKIN was born January 20,
1834, in Easton, Md. His father established, and was
editor and publisher of, the Talbott County (Md.) news-
paper called "The Eastern Shore Whig," which still exists. He was
a practical printer, and had the custom — like D. R. Locke — of
standing at the case and composing his editorials in type. His
ancestors, through many generations, were slave-owners, following
the custom of the State in which they lived. His own convictions
of right and justice made him a pronounced abolitionist in the
midst of these surroundings. For this he endured persecution and
injury — his house and printing-office twice being fired by enemies.
After his father's early death, Mr. Mullikin came, with his
mother and grandparents, as a small child, to Cincinnati, and here
he grew up, and has spent nearly all his life. The foundation of
his education was laid in the public schools. His preparatory
work for college was done under an old Scotch Covenanter minis-
ter, the Rev. Hugh McMillan, who conducted a private school at
Cedarville, near Xenia, O.
In 1854 he received his A. B. from Ohio University, and later
his A. M. He was valedictorian of his class.
While yet a student, he held a clerkship in the old Athens
OHIO UNIVERSITY 31
State bank. Immediately upon graduation, he entered upon a busi-
ness life. For many years he v/as connected with the old banking
firm — Gilmore, Dunlap & Company— the later part of the time as
junior partner. When the term of partnership expired, the busi-
ness was closed out, and he went to Springfield, O., and engaged
in manufacturing business. During the years of his residence there,
he filled several positions of local importance. He was an incorpo-
rator and director in the Springfield Savings bank, one of the
earliest of these now popular and beneficent institutions. He was
a member of the board of trustees of the Springfield Seminary;
was one of the organizers of the public library, for eleven years
serving actively on its board, seven years of which, as president.
He was, for various terms, president of the Y. M. C. A. He had
the political honor of being nominated for the public school board
by a joint vote of the two parties — Republican and Democratic.
Since he was twenty-one years of age, he has held constant
official relation to the church of his choice, the Methodist, as steward,
trustee, superintendent of Sunday School, and has been, of late
years, and still is, the progressive teacher of an adult Bible class.
He was one of the organizers of the Cincinnati Methodist Social
Union, serving several terms as secretary or as president.
Since his return to Cincinnati, some years ago, he has been in
manufacturing and mercantile pursuits, and is still so engaged.
During both periods of residence in Cincinnati, he has been a
member of "The Literary Club." He has served several terms on
the board of the Young Men's Mercantile Library association, two
of which were as its corresponding secretary. Although not actively
engaged in literary pursuits, he has been a more or less frequent
contributor to the press and to literary organizations with which
he has been connected.
He was married June 11, 1867, to Miss Katharine Clark, the
daughter of Rev. Bishop Clark, of the Methodist Church. There
are five children: the eldest, married to Edward K. Lowry, Sec-
retary of Legation, under Colonel Denby, Minister to China, and
since resident of Tientsin, China, was in the siege of the legation,
by the Boxers, in the summer of 1900— happily escaping with her

HE little town of McConnelsville, Morgan Gounty, O., has
long been eminent for the superior character and intelli-
gence of its citizenship. No town of its size in Ohio
has more of these things that elevate and stand for culture than
this town on the Muskingum. From her homes, she has sent out
her sons and daughters into the colleges and universities of the
The names of students and graduates of Ohio University from
Morgan county, are legion.
The subject of this sketch is a son of Morgan county, having
been born in McConnelsville, March — , 1835. His preparation for
college was made in private schools in Malta and McConnelsville,
34 ALUMNI NUMBER
under the tutorage of F. B. Pond, an Oberlin graduate, and John
Giles, superintendent of the public schools.
He became a student in the preparatory department of the
Ohio University, in March, 1852, and in June of the same year,
was passed into full Freshman rank. Four years later, he gradu-
ated in the Arts course, and in 1859 was granted the Master's title.
Mr. Davis states that when he came to Ohio University, during
the presidency of Dr. Ryors, there were but thirty-four students
in all departments, preparatory and collegiate. There were five
professors in all. "\^^len he graduated, in 1856, not a professor or
student that was there when he entered, was connected with the
institution. He saw the old regime go out and the new one come
in. Wlien he left, the students numbered two hundrd and fifty.
It is a matter of regret that the old school, in the late "forties"
met with such reverses that the doors were closed. President Mc
Guffey had attracted to Athens a large student body. When the
school re-opened under Dr. Eyors, it had to build all over again.
Its rapid regrowth shows how it was esteemed as a college. Had the
school continued through these years, the alumni roll would be at
least one hundred greater.
After graduation, Mr. Davis served as principal of the Ames-
ville academy for a year. Then he went to Marietta for three
years and acted as principal of the grammar school. In 1860, he
went to McConnelsville, where he engaged in business.
Like many another son of Ohio University, when war came
upon us, he volunteered in the service of his country. He served
as a private in the Seventeenth Ohio Volunteer Infantry.
Again engaging in business, he moved to Toledo, O., in 1867,
where he organized a company for the manufacture of silver plated
ware. Disposing of his interests, he entered the Methodist minis-
try in the Ohio Conference in 1870. He assumed superannuate re-
lations in 1901. In the fall of that year, he went to St. Louis,
where he was pastor of the Tuxedo Park Methodist Episcopal
church. He moved to Ottumwa, la., in 1903. Three years later,
he became a resident of "Winona Lake, Ind. Eev. Davis now
spends his time from November to June of each year at Citronelle,
Ala. The other half of the year, he is at his Indiana home.

NOTHEE Morgan county son of Ohio University is Elias
Millen Stanberry, who belongs to the class of 1857. The
Stanberrys are an old family in the Muskingum valley ^
and the name has long stood as a synonym for conservatism and
Many men, ujpon reaching their majority, go to new parts of
the country and embark in the business of life. It is always more
jor less of a compliment to a man to remain in his home neighbor-
hood and make for himself a successful career. The reasons are
so manifest, that they need no discussion in a biographical sketch
that is intended to narrate a man's achievements.
Mr, Stanberry was born in Deerfield, Morgan County, O.,
April 29, 1833, and he has always been identified with his home
county in a professional, business and political way. He matricu-
lated at Ohio University in April, 1854. He was, while in college,
a member of the Athenian Literary society and the Beta Theta Pi
fraternity. He received the baccalaureate degree in 1857, and at
once entered the Cincinnati Law school, where, in 1859, the degree
of L. L. B., was conferred upon him.
He began the practice of his profession in McConnelsville, where
for twenty-one years, he was one of the leaders of the Morgan
county bar. In 1862, he was elected prosecuting attorney of the
county. He held this office for six years. From 1881 to 1885, he
represented his county in the General Assembly. In 1880, he was
a member of the State Board of Equalization.
In politics, Mr. Stanberry has always taken an active interest.
He has frequently been chairman of the county organization, and
his time and means have always been generously contributed.
In the business world, Mr. Stanberry has been eminently suc-
cessful. He has been identified with many of the financial and bus-
iness interests of the county for nearly fifty years. He assisted in
organizing the First National bank of McConnelsville, in 1853;
the Brown-Manly Plow company, of Malta, in 1870; the Malta
National bank, 1872; the Morgan county Bridge company, 1866;
the Zanesville and Ohio River Railroad, 1885; the Citizens' bank,
1886; the Citizens' National bank, 1900; the Citizens' Savings and
Loan company, 1905 ; the Elk Eye Milling company, 1898, and he
built the Stanberry block, McConnelsville, in 1884.
In spite of his years. Mr. Stanberry yet takes an active interest
in his vast business affairs and each day finds him at his desk.
Mr. Stanberry inarried Miss Kate M. Miller, of Malta, O.,
February 28, 1861.

j^ AMES WILLIA3kI MUEPHY was born in Fairfield County,
0., March 28, 1832. He matriculated at Ohio University
in 1854 and graduated as a Bachelor of Arts in the class
of 1858. Four years later, he received a Master's degree.
Upon graduation, he became a teacher, and, for some years,
he followed that calling. His first position was in a private high
school in Jefferson City, Mo., where he remained for two years.
From 1864 to 1868, he was superintendent of the Logan, O., public
schools. Eeturning to Missouri, he was superintendent of schools
at Brunswick and Westport. Later, for a year, he had charge of
Liberty Female college, in that state.
Mr. Murphy has, for a number of years, followed agricultural
pursuits in his native county. His wife was Harriet Turner Cham-
bers, of Ottumwa,
la., to whom he was married October 19, 1870.
E are living in an age of the specialist. Every department
of labor and human endeavor has undergone, what, in
political economy', is termed the "division of labor,"
Modern scientific methods are, in a great measure, responsible for
the presence of the specialist. Science is but organized knowledge.
"^Yhen men begui to classify knowledge, they at once seek to dis-
cover the relations existing between cause and effect. Having
found these, the mind rapidly generalizes, and basic principles are
the result. Xo one discovers these principles, unless he applies
the scientific methods to his investigations.
The business world has long recognized the presence of certain
broad, generic principles, in the field of jDolitical economy. It has
only been in comparatively recent times, that the specialist, in this
OHIO UNIVERSITY 39
domain, has made himself felt. The rapid accumulation of wealth,
the great organizations of industry and finance, have called into
activity, men specially equipped for certain phases of business life.
Francis D. Carley is a specialist in railroad securities. As a result
of his scientific observation, he has been able to formulate certain
rules, that have aided him in making forecasts, with a degree of
accuracy, that alone testifies to being more than mere guesses. As
to the success of Mr. Carley's methods, we quote from Munsey\s
Magazine, in an article, "The New Wall Street":
"What it means to have the public with you in Wall street, is
shown with especial clearness in what Francis D. Carley has ac-
complished for the minority stockholders of a railroad controlled
by a bigger corporation, through the ownership of a majority of
the capital stock. The property has been making money, but no
dividends have been paid. Mr. Carlej^ undertook to champion
what he hid to be the minority's rights. Professional Wall Street
looked on amused. The stock, for which Mr. Carley stood, was
selling for about twenty-five dollars a share and the talent of the
stock exchange at once went short of it expecting to buy back
speedily at a ten point profit. Instead of any decline, advances
began, and from twenty-five points, the quotations rose steadily to
above ninety. Chief of all reasons for this was that the public
inclined to take hold of anything fairly promising, was persuaded
that Mr. Carley was in earnest and would fight loyally."
This contention finally resolved itself into litigation between
Mr. Carley and the Pennsylvania Railroad company.
Mr. Carley's investigations have demonstrated that there is
a science of finance. The success he has won, and the reputation
gained along this line, indicates that he is no theorist, but that
what he maintains, are well-founded principles.
Francis Dighton Carley, the son of Rufus Washburn Carley
and Mary Ann (Maphet) Carley, was bprn at St. Clairsville, Bel-
mont County, O., Januarj^ 19, 1839. He graduated at the Ohio
University in the class of 1858. Two years afterward, he was given
the Master's degree. He was Professor of Mathematics, of Valpa-
raiso College, Indiana, 1860-61. Pie then held the Chair of Lan-
guages in the North Indiana College. For a time, he practiced-
law in Chicago. In 1865, he began his business career in Louisville,
Ky. For twenty-five years, he was prominently associated with
large business interests. Pie was president of the southern branch
of the Standard Oil company, of the Citizens' Gas compan}^, of
Louis^dlle, and of the Louisville Board of Trade.
In 1890, Mr. Carley went to New York and opened business
on Wall Street, where he pursued his successful study of railroad
securitias. Mr. Carley resides at Tuxedo Park. He is a member
of the Union League club and the Tuxedo club. His wife was
IMiss Grace Chess, of South Bend, Ind. They have three children.
One daughter is the vrife of Dr. C. W. Hargons, of South Dakota,
and another is the wife of Oliver Harriman Jr., a banker in New
York. They have one son, Francis C. Carley, who occupies a seat
in the Xew York Stock Exchange.
OHN NELSON PILCHEE was born in Canaanville, Athens
County, O., February 15, 1833. He matriculated at Ohio
University in the preparatory department in 1852.
While a student, he was a member of the Philomathean Literary
society and of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity. He received the bac-
calaureate degree in June, 1858. Three years later, the degree
of Master of Arts was conferred upon him by his Alma Mater.
For some time after completing his college course, he was em-
ployed as a teacher. He became a member of the Ohio Confrence
of the Methodist Episcopal church and served congregations for
a number of years at the following points : Phanouth, Chester, Mt.
Pleasant, Hamden, Jackson, Pleasanton, Big Plain, Westerville,
Plain City, Lawrence and Petersburg. Upon retiring from the
ministry, he went to a farm at Canaanville, the place of his birth.
He is now living a retired life with his son at Streator, 111.
HUGH BOYD, '59
N looking over the Alumni roll of the Ohio University, one
is impressed by the frequent recurrence of family names.
There is something more than sentiment in the custom
that leads whole families to select the same college home. Here at
Ohio University, we find the Reads, the Kirkendalls, the Lashes,
the Miesses and the Boyds. The first of the last named family to
graduate was the subject of this sketch, Hugh Boyd.
He was born at Keene, Coshocton county, Ohio, August 6,
1835. He entered college in May, 1856. He holds three degrees
from this University: the Bachelor's, granted 1859; the Master's,
1862 ; and Doctor of Divinity, 1885. In college he was a Philoma-
thean and a Beta Theta Pi.
The first year after graduation he remained in Athens as tutor
of mathematics. Then for seven years he engaged in public school
work — Superintendent of schools at Logan and Chillicothe. In
1868 he united with the Ohio Conference of the Methodist Episco-
pal Church. Four years later he was called to fill the chair of
Greek and Latin at Cornell College, Mt. Vernon, Iowa. This
position he yet holds after thirty-seven years. His place among the
j)atrons of his college is secure and the Ohio University has no
reason to be ashamed of the record made by this member of the

MONG the early settlers of southeastern Ohio was the family
of Goodspeed. Like many another of the pioneers of
Athens county it came from Massachusetts, where, for
nearly two centuries, its members took an active part in the colonial
development of the Old Bay State.
The father of "Major" Goodspeed, as he is familiarly called by
the citizens of Athens, was Ezra Goodspeed, who came to Ohio in
October, 1808. It took him seven weeks to journey from his old
to his new home in the West. His wife was Matilda Rose. The
home was near the present city of Athens. It was here on June
20, 1834, that Jose^^h McKendree Goodspeed was born. His early
education was received in the rural schools as they were found in
Ohio in the early "forties." He became a student of the Prepara-
OHIO, ^UNIVERSITY 45
tory Department of the Ohio University in the autumn of 1852.
During his college course he taught several terms of school. This
prevented his graduation before 1859 when he secured the A. B.
degree. Three years later he became Master of Arts.
While in college he was a Beta Theta Pi and a Philomathean.
The two years succeeding his graduation he taught in Middleport,
Ohio, and in Carroll College, Ky.
He enlisted in the army, becoming Second Lieutenant of Com-
pany E, Seventy-fifth O. V. I.. He re-inlisted in 1864 in the One
Hundred Forty-first O. V. I. He ranked in this regiment as an
adjutant. He participated in a number of the battles of the war,
among which may be mentioned Second Bull's K,un and Cedar
In 1866 he became Superintendent of the Athens Public Schools
a position he retained for nineteen j^ears. In addition to being at
the head of the school system he has been active in the upbuilding
of the town. He has been interested in quite a number of business
and financial undertakings. He was for eighteen years a member
of the County Board of School Examiners, of Athens county. For
years he was a frequent attendant at the Ohio State Teachers' asso-
ciation and held within that body a number of official positions.
Governor Hoadley appointed Mr. Goodspeed as a Trustee of
Ohio University, a position he resigned after several years. Major
Goodspeed congratulates himself that he was in a great measure
instrumental in the employment of Dr. J. P. Gordy, one of the
great teachers of the University.
Major Goodspeed has long been prominent in Masonic circles.
For a long period he was the only thirty-third degree Mason in
southern Ohio. He has had the distinction of being Grand Master
of Ohio, Deputy Master, and Grand Master of the Grand Council
of Ohio, and has the satisfaciton of knowing that these honors have
come to him unsolicited.
He has for a number of years led a retired life in Athens a
few miles from the scenes of his boyhood and within the sound of
the same college bell that called him to class more than half a

INLEY KOBERTSON HAXXA, or Fin R. Banna, as lie

^ of this year's "Jubilee Class." That he has a tender
place for his Alma Mater is evident when you read his letters. ' In
one, dated March 10, 1907, we note, '"I hope to be present at com-
mencement in 1909 to celebrate my 'semi-centennial.' " Mr. Hanna
was born in McConnelsville, Morgan county, Ohio, February 3, 1837.
"In April, 1855, I put in my appearance as a 'Prep' in the
Ohio University, locating in the famous room, No. 16, second floor,
Main building. I fouiid E. N. Lauman in No. 14; J. K. Mower
and P. B. Davis in No. 18; E. M. Stanberry and B. B. Sheffield

through various vicissitudes, having our fun, playing our games,
•our crowd' being gradually decimated until 1859, when I was pre-
sented with my parchment by Governor Salmon P. Chase."
During his college years Mr. Hanna was a member of the
Athenian Literaiy Society and when he graduated he received the
degree of Bachelor of Arts. In 1862 the Master's degree was con-
ferred upon him. He read laAv in the office of his father and began
the practice of his profession in his native place. He subsequently
went to St. Joseph, Mo., where he has followed his profession. In
Independence, Mo., he taught for a period in the Academy of that
The friendship between i\Ir. Butterworth and Mr. Hanna was
very close. After their separation at Ohio University they did not
meet again until 1888 at the Chicago Convention when Benjamin
Harrison was nominated for the Presidency. Here they renewed
their acquaintance and enjoj-ed for a season the recalling of tlieir
college daj'S. Mr. Hanna, in summing up the career of his friend,
states that the Ohio University never had a truer hearted, a more
generous or honorable student than brave, dear '"old Ben Butter-
worth.'' "Now should other honorable gentlemen of the cloth, the
woolsack and others of different allotments in life, be reminded of
fruit, melon and ice cream entertainments 'on foot' (T) in the days
when our hearts were full of joyousness, ere sorrows and the sad-
ness of real life had taught us that there are shadows as well as
sunshine in life, it might be better I should not attend my anniver-
sary as I desire to do next June. I hope all those same good men
and friends are still in esse and may perhaps have as great desire
as I have to revisit old scenes. I was then the sprinter and kicker
at football. I may have so aged and fallen away that I might not
be in the lead in a contest of speed I Wlia't say you, Mower, Shef-
field, Stanberry, Goodspeed, Carley, et al? God bless the old fel-
lows ! How I would like to see them."
HE record of a well-spent and useful life, even if humble, de-
serves to be remembered. It is beautiful as you travers*.
the world's by-ways to meet an unassuming traveler, un-
heralded and unacclaimed by the courier, reputation. This is one
of the assets of a collegiate training — to make men resigned to the
idea that wherever they labor their work can be full, comjDlete and
potent for good. The idea that an education is lost because the
possessor did not obtain a high political ^^osition or because he did
not get to be a great "captain of industry," may still prevail amon^
some so-called "practical" people, but it does not obtain among
those who have felt the influence of men whose powers have been
utilized in making a community better.
The life record of Alban Davies, who graduated a half century
OHIO UNIVERSITY 49
ago, is a concrete illustration of siicli a career. Pie was born in
Cardenshire, Wales, December 1, 1832 and came to America with
his parents, Stephen and Mary (Alban) Davies when five years
old. In the year 1849, he became a resident of Pomeroy, Ohio,
where he lived until the time of his death, January 21, 1892.
While a J^oung man he worked at the carpenter trade in sum-
mer and attended school in the winter season. He became a stu-
dent of Ohio University iii the fall of 1853, beginning his work in
the Preparatory Department. During his collegiate course he was
known as a strong debater and his ability as a public speaker was
never questioned. It is said that once when a lecturer failed to
put in an appearance at Pomeroy, Mr. Davies was drafted into
service and he pleased the people so well that they were glad that
the intended speaker had not come.
After his graduation he became a teacher and for six years
was Superintendent of Schools at Racine and Pomero3^ Entering
politics, he served the people of his county as Treasurer from the
years 1865-G9. In 1875-77, he represented Meigs county in the
General Assembly. In 1890 he was an unsuccessful candidate for
Congress. For many years he was a member of the city council.
In his political life he was noted for his fairness and honesty, for
he believed that a man ought to be as honest in politics as in busi-
As a business man Mr. Davies held high rank. At the time of
his death he was agent, treasurer and manager of the Pomeroy
Machine Works. A local paper of opposite politics to Mr. Davies,
had this to say of him:
"Cool, conservative, level-headed, economical, and pure-mind-
ed, he probably has done as much for Pomeroy as any other man
who ever lived within her borders."
In religious matters Mr. Davies was a strong churchman. Be-
ing a member of the Presbyterian Church he ever took a deep in-
terest in its welfare. For many years he was elder and for twenty-
five years served as teacher in the Sunday School.
His home life was ideal. His wife was Miss Almonia Curtis,
to whom he was married two 3''ears after his graduation. To them
were born three daughters, Glennie, Edna and Oma, who remem-
ber him as a kind, indulgent father, whose personal habits were as
pure as his public life. The family now lives in Berkeley, Califor-
nia, and their interest in Ohio University is deep-seated, for the
"Old College" was ever a pleasant memory to the husband and
Mr. Davies was an earnest reader of history — Grote's history
of Greece being one of his favorite studies.
The high esteem in whicli he was held by his fellow townsmen
is evidenced by the attendance of over a thousand people at his
funeral which was held in the Pomeroy Opera House.
Mmt^ Ifaru^a (^nthmv
NY one in looking over the alumni roll of Ohio University
will hardly fail to notice the great number of Metho-
dist clergymen who have been educated in her halls.
This was notably true during the Presidency of Dr. Solomon
Howard, 1852-72. The education of so many ministers, not only of
the Methodist Episcopal Church, but of other denominations as
well, is one of the evidences of the strong religious atmosphere that
has always pervaded this pioneer college of the West.
Ohio University takes pride in this feature of her history,
and she is equally proud of her alumni who have entered the ranks
of the ministry. They are loyal sons of Alma Mater, and wherever
the scenes of their labors shift, the mystic cords of memory draw
them back to "Old O. U.," where they have learned to live, not only
for the times, but for the eternities.

J. H. GARDNER.
True to his purpose, Mr. Gardner mingled with the hundreds
of "Home-comers" who flocked into Athens during that June week
of 1904 and witnessed the substantial growth of the University from
what it had been in former years. Just two months later (August
13) James Harvey Gardner of the class of 1859, passed away at
his Delaware home, aged seventy-one years. He was born near
New Lexington, Perry County, Ohio, May 20, 1833. His parents
were Isaac and Julia A. Gardner.
He matriculated at Ohio University in the Spring of 1855.
Upon his graduation, four years later, he gave the Latin Salutatory.
During his college course he excelled in Latin and it was his ambi-
tion to become a teacher in that branch, until he felt a call to the
ministry in 1858, when he was granted license to preach.
After leaving the Ohio University he went South and became
a teacher in Manchester Academy, Tennessee. In a ^ short time he
was elected President of Shelbyville University in the same state.
'While thus engaged he was ordained Deacon by Bishop Early in
the Methodist Episcopal Church. This was in 1861 and the Civil
AVar was imminent. Governor Tod of Ohio commissioned him as
Chaplain of the Seventeenth Regiment, O. V. I. Witli this regi-
ment he served throughout the war. He saw severe service at
Chickamauga, went with Sherman to the Sea, and with the war-
scarred ranks, took part in the grand review at Wasliington.
Then began his career of thirty-five years of activitj^ as a
minister. The first work assigned him was the organization of
South Street Church, Zanesville. Two years later he took the
order of Elder at the hands of Bishop Ames. (Bishop Ames, while
not an alumnus, was a student of the Ohio University in 1826-28).
Rev. Gardner was married to Miss Carrie M. Wait of Dayton,
O., June 7, 1865. Mrs. Gardner still resides at the Delaware
home. Of the four daughters born to this marriage, but two are
living— Mrs. Royce, the wife of Rev. L. H. Royce, of Cleveland, O.,
and Mrs. Neil, wife of Prof. C. E. Neil, of Morgantown, ^Y. Va.
His ministerial appointments have been as follows: Middle-
port; Columbus; Chillicothe; Portsmouth; Washington C, H. ;
Zanesville; Ironton; Nelson ville; Newark; Delaware; Circleville,
and Wellston. For four years, 1883-87, he was Presiding Elder
of the London District, in which time he served as a delegate to
the. General Conference, In 1900 he took superannuate relations (o
the conference, but still continued as a supply minister until the
time of his death.
It will be noted that Eev. Gardner was never a "circuit-rider,"
His w^ork was always found in station appointments. He was a
man of great activity and he never allowed his interests to lag.
He was always a student and as his children passed through the
schools he went with them in their studies,
Eev, I. F, King, who had been associated with Di-. Gardner for
fortj^ years, has this to say of him:
"Few men w^ere more cheerful, more hospitable, or more gifted
in conversation. As a preacher he took high rank. There v.as
poetrj^ in his nature. It showed itself in the cadence of his voice,
111 the rj^thm of his sentences, in the beautiful imagery of his
thoughts, as w^ell as in the grace of his gesture. As a philosopher
he was unique."
Of his relations to Ohio University it is not out of place to
add that during his stay in college, he was a member of the Athen-
ian Literary Society and of Beta Theta Pi. In 18G6, his Alma
Mater conferred upon him the INIaster's degree, and in 1802 that of
Doctor of Divinity,
There is no better \x-Ay to close this sketch than b}' an extract
from a letter of Mrs, Gardner's:
"My husband was vevy fond of his Alma Mater and the last
year of his life enjoj^ed very much a part of the commencement
THE NEW GYMNASIUM.
T the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia in 1876 the edu-
f cational exhibit from Ohio attracted general attention.
The superiority of this exhibit was due in a great meas-
ure to the efforts of State School Commissioner, Charles S. Smart,
another of the "fifty-niners."
We have been able to collect very little data concerning the
life of Mr. Smart, consequently only a bare outline can be furnished.
He was born at Charleston, W. Va., February 24, 1835 ; matric-
ulated at Ohio University in 1857; graduated in 1859 with the de-
gree of Bachelor of Science; received the Master's Iionor in 1866;
taught in the public schools of Gallipolis in 1860-62; teacher in a
private school in the same city, 1863 ; was Superintendent of
Schools at Jackson, Ohio, 1865-69; Superintendent of Schools at
Circleville, Ohio, 1869-73. It was when holding the last position
that he was elected State School Commissioner of Ohio. He served
but one term.
J. J. Burns, who succeeded Mr. Smart in the office, has this to
say of his predecessor: "Mr. C. S. Smart earnestly desired the suc-
cess of the schools of Ohio and the improvement of the school sys-
tem, but was not in accord with the majority of school people upon
the question of supervision, the State Association, high schools and
other matters * * *."
From an examination of the annual reports of Mr. Smart it
seems that he had his doubts about the wisdom of a general sys-
tem of school supervision. AVhile acknowledging the value of such
work when properly done, he feared the results when much import-
ant duties, devolved upon incompetent, political intriguing, and
school-board-manipulating superintendents. ITnder such conditions
he considered supervision a hindrance rather than a help.
Upon his retirement from the Commissioner's office, Mr. Smart
became a representative of the Equitable Life Insurance Company.
He was connected with this company for over twenty years, first
in Columbus, then in Detroit, then in St. Louis and finally in New

XOTHER clergyman of the class of 1859 was William Rose-
field Smith who was born on a farm in Washington
count}^, Pennsylvania, Januaiy 10, 1837.
He became a student at Ohio University in 1857, entering the
Junior class and graduated two years later as Bachelor of Science.
A f ter graduation he became a teacher. For a short time he Avas
Superintendent of the Pomeroy, Ohio, schools. Re was holding
this position when he entered the Union army, where he served
until the close of the war, when he entered the ministry of the
Presbyterian Church. This he gave up to devote his time to the
temperance cause, lecturing and organizing societies. In this work
his throat became so affected from speaking in the open air that
he was forced to abandon public speaking for a season. During
this time he was sent by Governor St. John to investigate the con-
(litions in western Kansas on account of crop failures. Finding
the suffering greater tlian was expected, he gathered supplies and
sent them to the various points for distribution.
He again entered the ministry, this time in the Congregational
Church, and served congregations through western Iowa and east-
ern South Dakota, his work being largely on the frontier.
In the autumn of 1899, he came to Kansas once more and
served the congregation at Udal. In 1901 he moved to Partridge.
He was stricken with paralysis on September 20, 1903 and died
December 5, in Ilutchinson, where he had moved that he might
be able to get the best me'dical treatment.
While teaching in Ohio he married Mary Irwin, one of his
pupils of Harrisonville, Meigs county, Ohio. Six children
were born to them, four of whom are yet living. A son, R. D.
Smith, is Secretary-Treasurer of the Bible House of Los Angeles,
California. This firm makes a specialty of Spanish Bibles. The
work has grown under his supervision until Bibles are now supplied
in large quantities to Japan, Africa, Philippines, Cuba, South and
Central America, Mexico and western United States..

j'-ears later Mr. Smith married Hulda McMurray, a teacher in the

GEORGE W. CALDAVELL.
N recording the work of death among the Ohio University
Ahimni for 1908, there is none to write more tragic
than that of George W. Caldwell of the class of 1902.
A young man of promise, with health and a bright future, is
suddenly caught up by the hand of death, all his dreams are shat-
tered, aged parents are stricken with a grief overwhelming, com-
panions and friends are disconsolate and a young woman is pros-
trate with a broken heart.
It was a sad Saturday in the county-seat town of Waverly,
Ohio, when the news spread through the streets that the popular
principal of the High School, who, a few hours before, with two
companions, had left the village to enjoy a swim, had been drowned
in the treacherous waters of the Scioto.
George Washington Caldwell was the son of Alexander Cald-
well, a well-known citizen of Athens county, Ohio. He was born
near Coolville, August 14, 1877. He entered Ohio University in
OHIO UNIVERSITY 59
the autumn of 1895 and graduated in course, June 19, 1902, receiv-
ing the A. B. degree. At the time of his death he Avas pursuing
liis work for the Master's degree, his major thesis being "Euskin's
Views on Economics."
While in college he was a member of the Philomathean Liter-
ary society, the Beta Theta Pi fraternity and for two seasons did
good work on the college gridiron.
After leaving the University he became Superintendent of
Schools at Coolville. Later he was Principal of the High School
at Finleyville, Pa. For a short time he was connected with the
National Cash Kegister Company, at Dayton. While Principal at
Waverly, he conducted a select school for advanced pupils.
He was at the time of his death engaged to marry Miss Cummie
Ploffman, a young lady of Waverly and their marriage was to have
been celebrated on his approaching birthday, August 14.
The circumstances of his death are briefly these: On Satur-
day, July 25, he and two companions, Carl Johnson and Malcolm
Douglas, the latter a student at the Ohio University, went bathing
in the Scioto river. They had been doing this almost daily for a
month. They swam some distance down the stream and were re-
utrning to the place of starting when in a very deep and strong
current, Mr. Caldwell was seized with cramps. Calling for help,
his companions hastened to him and grasping him tried in vain
to get him to shore, but his weight and the battle against the stream
were too much for their exhausted strength and but for the timely
assistance of some bridge workmen nearby, who threw out ropes,
it might have been a triple tragedy. The body was not recov-
ered until a day and a half later. He was brought to the scene of
his boyhood days and buried in the Presbyterian graveyard on the
(Tuysville Pike. Among his fraternity brothers, as among his fel-
low students and friends and those with Avhom he associated pro-
fessionally, he was known as a warm-hearted friend, a diligent
student and a thorough gentleman.

HEX Barklev Cooper died, September 15, 1908, a Wheeling
paper had this to say of him : "In his death the commu-
nity suffers the loss of a most estimable citizen. The
business interests of the city have lost a faithful, upright and effici-
ent servant. And his immediate circle of friends have lost one of
their number whose memory will grow more precious with the
Mr. Cooper was born at Uniontown, Belmont county, Ohio,
October 7, 1838. He prepared for college at Barnesville Academy,
and graduated from Ohio University with the degree of Bachelor
Shortly after his graduation he, with his brother, began the
study of law with Judge Kennan of St. Clairsville. But before
completing the course of study he and his brother enlisted in the
OHIO UNIVERSITY 63
service of the Union arm}^, August 15, 1862, as privates in Company
B, One Hundred and TAventy-sixth O. V. I. Mr. Cooper saw a
great deal of hard service, first in AVest Virginia and afterward
in the campaigns of Virginia. The One Hundred and Twenty-
Sixth Regiment was made up of no holiday soldiers and Mr. Coop-
er participated in its arduous work. Among the many engagments
in which he took part were those at Martinsburg, Manasses Gap,
Bristoe Station, McLean's Ford and others. AVith his regiment,
be took part in suppressing the New York draft riots. In the bat-
tle of the Wilderness, May 6, 1804, he v/as twice shot, one of the
balls jjassing through the head and causing a desperate wound.
His recovery was regarded as one of the most remarkable on record
and an account of it is preserved in the medical records of the
war. In the same battle his brother was shot at his side and two
clays later he died. Mr. Cooper was left lying on the field of
battle and was taken by the Confederates as a prisoner of war. On
recovering sufficiently from his wounds, he was transferred from
place to place and was for a time confined in Libby Prison. He
w^as mustered out of the service June 10, 1865. That he was a
faithful and cajiable soldier is attested by the promotions he suc-
cessively received — Corporal, Sergeant, Orderly Sergeant, Second
T^ieutenant, and First Lieutenant. He was a charter member of
the Wheeling G. A. R. Post and also of the Union Veteran League.
At the close of the war Mr. Cooper fitted himself for a busi-
ness career. Returning to St. Clairsville he became a candidate
for County Treasurer and served the people of Belmont county
in that capacity for two terms.
Early in the "seventies," Mr. Cooper went to Wheeling and
took a position as bookkeeper with the firm of Greer and Laing.
In this place he remained for nearly thirty-five years. A few
years prior to his death the firm w^as incorporated and Mr. Cooper
was made Vice-President and Secretary.
He was married on October 26, 1876 to Miss Fannie Campbell
of Morris, Grundy county, Illinois. There were two daughters.
Miss Mamie and Mrs. Vivian K. Smith, who live rn Wheeling.
Mr. Cooper was reared as a member of the Society of Friends
but he united with the Methodist Episcopal Church and Avas a
consistent member of that denomination at the time of his death.
J0l|n HalBli O^tnn. '93
HE death of John W. Ginn on April 20, 1908, was the first
loss sustained by the large class of 1893. This class at
the time of its graduation enjoyed the distinction of
being the largest ever to graduate from the Ohio University.
John Walsh Ginn was born in New England, Athens county,
Ohio, February 19, 1870, and died at the home of his only sister,
Mrs. L. A. Patterson, Wellston, Ohio. He spent his boyhood days
at New England, Amesville and Stewart, in Athens county and
at Hamden, Vinton county. He was a boy fond of out-door life
and spent much time in roaming over hill and valley to indulge
his love for nature.
He became a student at Ohio University in 18S7 and because
of his lack of means his collegiate course was broken into and he
did not receive his degree of Bachelor of Arts until 1893. While
OHIO UNIVERITY 65
in college he was a member of the Delta Tau Delta fraternity. He
was proficient in his favorite study, Latin. The fame of his orig-
inal and characteristic exploits lingered in the corridors and about
the walls of the old institution long after he had departed and
even today one can scarcely enter a group of the "Boys of Old"
without hearing an echo from those brief years that he spent m
After graduation he taught school for a short period at New
Pittsburg, Ohio, and then entered the service of the Chesapeake
and Ohio Railroad Company, as agent and remained continuously
in that employment until his death. The last ten years of this
service was rendered at Alleghany, Virginia, on the crest of the
John W. Ginn believed in service. The three distinguishing
traits of his life were unselfishness, fidelity and fearlessness. As
evidence of the last named characteristic, his bold defiance of the
liquor interests of his mountain town might be mentioned. Here
he braved the threat of death from those who had "killed their
man." He won the battle at the polls and later engaged in a
legal battle in the courts to perfect the victory won by ballot. In
this contest his time and his money were cheerfully given. All
bills for court expense were met by him. Thus almost single-
handed and alone he led in a good fight in a good cause and banished
the open saloon from his home town.
He made but few intimate friends but these he linked to him-
self with hooks of steel. In all the affairs of life, deeds and ser-
vice spoke for him. His fidelity to a little mountain church, his
clean, pure life, his faithfulness to every friend, his fearless and
unselfish devotion to his Master's many causes, great and small,
speak louder than any words.

Sweet Athens! the home of learning and beauty,
How I long for thy hills and thy rich balmy air;
For thy wide spreading greens, smiling sweetly on duty,
And the valley beneath, and the stream winding there!
On the North the high rock, on the South the lone ferry;
The ville on the Ea^, and the mill on the We^,
The lawn where the graved at play hours were merry,
And the w^alks by the footstep of beauty made ble^:
Bright Athens, farew^ell! if thy green slopes should never
Loom up in the distance to w^elcome me more.
Thy scenes are engraved on my heart and forever
Shall memory faithfully keep them in store;
I think of thy rills, and my blood richly flowing.
Leaps freshly as erst through every vein;
And thy landscape, w^ith di^ance and time brighter grow^ing,
Seems all made anew in the heavenly plain.
— William Dana Emerson, Class of 1833
